About Me:

Just an IT professional trying to make a decent return on whatever money I can get together.

Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I invest with... <£100k
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
Investing is a journey that I am only 3 years into. I mostly invest in small caps that I think have interesting characteristics, it could be mommentum, it could be value it could be quality. Anything where I think I can make 20% return within a year. I've learnt a lot in 3 years and have adapted along the way, I expect to continue to learn and adapt my strategy for some time to come.

One of the features I have always loved about Stockopedia is the Fantasy Funds capability. I know that you can run fantasy portfolios on lots of sites but I think Stockopedia does them particularly well although its surprising to me sometimes how underused they are.I personally find the insight into how other people are investing and trading in their portfolios (real or not) to be…

Hi All, I'm pretty disappointed in my investment in FairFX (LON:FFX) . All the updates seem to have been good, the direction of the company seems right, ok so Brexit and other things provide some headwind, but does that really justify the drop in the SP? My current holding is well underwater, beyond my normal tolerance, but I am having trouble letting go of it…

I held Keywords Studios (LON:KWS) from shortly after they floated until about 2 weeks ago when I cut it from my portfolio as the current draw-down started to happen. It has felt overpriced for a while and so I didn't need much encouragement to get out. I still have a lot of regard for the company though and have been tracking its price relentlessly downwards…

Hi, I've posted a few similar challenges over the years for various stocks. The general thinking is that when i'm looking at a company I should be looking for the one reason not to buy it rather than the positive reasons that confirm my bias. I've been looking at Stock Spirits (LON:STCK) for a while, ever since I started making the occasional trip to Poland…

Hi all, I'm interested in which alerts people are using on Stockopedia. I think we all probably know how to set up and get value from a Price Greater than or Price less than alert but there are a huge range of options, many of which I can't actually get to work how I think they should. If anyone from Stockopedia reads this, I would…

Interesting stock, thanks for bringing it to our attention as I was not previously aware of it. 

For those of you interested in or operating your own Fantasy Fund, the Fantasy Funds are not yet available in the New Mobile Stockopedia site. The links in this discussion thread to the Fantasy Funds will not work if using the new site format.If you want to view any Fantasy Fund then you will need to switch back to the "Classic" interface (which is now…

Today I sold Electronic Arts from the fund. My thesis on the hype around their latest game doesn't seem to be holding and so I'm selling for roughly an 8% loss. However, recent buys Instem (LON:INS) and CyberArk have made great starts. I bought more Instem (LON:INS) personally but didn't have the funds in the fantasy fund to buy any more here. Slack continues to…

Maybe the thing to have done would have been to set some alarms to tell you when the style changed or any of the factors improved?? Carey
